The construction site on the Kiawah side of Freshfields Village has been a buzz of activity since early March of this year, and by early to mid December, all of that hard work will be celebrated with the opening of Freshfields newest feature, The Station.
At 4,000 square feet, The Station’s main building will include everything you’d expect from a convenience store in Freshfields Village. Along with basic convenience store goods such as candy, basic household items and an automobile section, The Station will also have a deli with hot and cold food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with daily specials and take home options, as well as a large coffee section. Opposite the deli will be a full wall of coolers, including a Beer Cave and a section for grocery items such as milk, ice cream and chilled drinks.
The Kiawah entrance to the store is right at the end of the new Kiawah bike path and bike parking racks are already being installed. Indoor and outdoor seating will be provided, including a small, semi-covered patio just off the bike path.
The Station will also feature eight fueling stations with four pumps each, vacuum and air stations, and a water-efficient, touch-free car wash station.
Construction for the project is being handled by Hill Contractors and the conceptual design was done by John Hailey and MG Architects. Engineering was provided by Thomas and Hutton Engineers.
